Fabada asturiana

Commercials that strongly remind me of the beautiful commercials by Basque TV Station EITB, but these advertise a brand of Asturian 'fabada'. 
Fabada asturiana, often simply known as fabada, is a rich Spanish bean stew, originally from and most commonly found in the autonomous community of Asturias, but widely available throughout the whole of Spain and in Spanish restaurants worldwide. Canned fabada is sold in most supermarkets across the country.

Fabada is a hot and heavy dish and for that reason is most commonly eaten during winter and at the largest meal of the day, lunch. It is usually served as a starter, but may also be the main course of the meal. It is typically served with crusty bread, and with Asturian cider or a red wine.
